Kapurthala, Sep 2 (UNI) Residents, led by local political leaders, today held a demonstration here, demanding the arrest of Chandigarh-based in-laws of a local dowry victim.
The Kapurthala police had registered a case under section 307,4 98A, 406 and 34 of the IPC on August 29 against the in-laws on the complaint of the woman whose parents reside here.
The victim's father, accompanied by large number of residents, staged a dharna outside the residence of SSP Rakesh Aggarwal, alleging police inaction under political pressure in arresting the in-laws.
Mr Aggarwal, however, denied the allegation that the police was under political pressure not to arrest the accused. He said the police was verifying the facts and collecting evidence before arresting the accused.
